Facebook has elevated to its new censorship board a virulent left-wing professor who attacked Donald Trump’s young son, Barron.
That’s right, a hardcore leftist who attacked a little boy for political reasons has been put in a position of telling YOU what you are allowed to post on Facebook.
We reported here last week that Facebook announced its first slate of 20 leftists — most of whom are foreigners — who will be tasked with reviewing Facebook posts to determine if social media users should be allowed to post anything.
While the largest number of these censors are foreign leftists, many are homegrown leftists and some have noted that one of them is a hate-filled, left-wing, professor from Stanford Law School named Pamela Karlan.
According to CNBC, that the board will make “final decisions about what’s allowed on the platform.”
With all these extreme leftists on the new board, we’ll give you three guesses which ideological side of the aisle will find posts censored even more than they are already… and, as they say, the first two guesses don’t count.
So, just how unbiased with this Karlan character be?
Not unbiased at all.
Karlan made news during the Democrat’s fake impeachment show trials when she attacked 13-year-old Baron Trump on video and in front of a congressional committee.
Look at this video that Trump’s War Room tweeted out last year:
Democrats chose liberal professor Pam Karlan as their star impeachment witness.
She just went out of her way to mock and attack Barron Trump, the President's 13-year-old child.

This is the unhinged, hateful, leftist that will be telling you what you are allowed to post on Facebook.
Conservatives won’t be oppressed even more, huh?
No, not at all.

REVEALED: The 20 Foreign Left-Wingers Facebook Hired to Determine What You are Allowed to Post
Facebook revealed the names of the 20 foreign left-wing activists it has hired to determine what you will be allowed to post.
Facebook revealed on Wednesday the names of the 20 left-wing, mostly foreign activists it has hired to determine what you will be allowed to post on the platform.
The social media giant revealed the names of the people who will sit on its new “Oversight Board.” And it turns out that a large number of the people on the board are members of the UN, the European Union, leftist professors, and far, far left activist groups, CNBC reported.
What a surprise, huh? The people Facebook picked to censor Americans are a bunch of extremist, left-wing, foreigners!
It will truly be the end of freedom of speech on Facebook once these extremists get started.
The oversight board will govern appeals from Facebook and Instagram users and questions from Facebook itself, although it admitted it will have to pick and choose which content moderation cases to take due to the sheer volume of them.
The board will receive cases through a content management system that is linked to Facebook’s own platforms. They will then discuss the case as a group before issuing a final decision on whether the content should be allowed to stay up or not.
The members are a globally diverse group with lawyers, journalists, human rights advocates and other academics. Between them, they are said to have expertise in areas such as digital rights, religious freedom, conflicts between rights, content moderation, internet censorship and civil rights.
Notable members include Alan Rusbridger, former editor in chief of The Guardian newspaper, and Andras Sajo, a former judge and VP of the European Court of Human Rights.
Helle Thorning-Schmidt, a former Prime Minister of Denmark, is one of the board’s four co-chairs. “Up until now some of the most difficult decisions about content have been made by Facebook and you could say Mark Zuckerberg,” she said on a call with the press Wednesday. “Facebook has decided to change that.”
Here is the full list of the biased activists Facebook has hired to decide if you should be allowed to speak on Facebook. And you’ll notice that every one of them are leftists and many are foreigners:
- Afia Asantewaa Asare-Kyei, human rights advocate at the Open Society Initiative for West Africa
- Evelyn Aswad, University of Oklahoma College of Law professor who formerly served as a senior U.S. State Department lawyer
- Endy Bayuni, journalist who twice served as the editor-in-chief of the Jakarta Post
- Catalina Botero-Marino, Facebook Oversight Board co-chair, dean of the Universidad de los Andes Faculty of Law
- Katherine Chen, communications scholar at the National Chengchi University and former national communications regulator in Taiwan
- Nighat Dad, digital rights advocate who received the Human Rights Tulip Award
- Jamal Greene, Facebook Oversight Board co-chair, Columbia Law professor
- Pamela Karlan, Stanford Law professor and United States Supreme Court advocate
- Tawakkol Karman, Nobel Peace Prize laureate named as one of “History’s Most Rebellious Women” by Time
- Maina Kiai, director of Human Rights Watch’s Global Alliances and Partnerships program
- Sudhir Krishnaswamy, vice chancellor of the National Law School of India University
- Ronaldo Lemos, technology, intellectual property and media lawyer who teaches law at Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro
- Michael McConnell, Facebook Oversight Board co-chair, Stanford Law professor who previously served as a federal circuit judge
- Julie Owono, digital rights and anti-censorship advocate who leads Internet Sans Frontieres
- Emi Palmor, former director general of the Israeli Ministry of Justice
- Alan Rusbridger, former editor-in-chief of The Guardian
- Andras Sajo, former judge and vice president of the European Court of Human Rights
- John Samples, helps lead a libertarian think tank and writes extensively on social media and speech regulation
- Nicolas Suzor, Queensland University of Technology Law School professor
- Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Facebook Oversight Board co-chair, former Prime Minister of Denmark
So much for the true red, white, and blue American ideal of free speech!

Facebook Deletes Accounts of People Organizing Lockdown Protests
Facebook has begun systematically deleting pages, announcements, and accounts of users trying to organize events to protest government lockdowns.
Facebook has begun systematically deleting pages, announcements, and accounts of users trying to organize events to protest government lockdown orders.
The social media giant with 221 million users in the United States announced that it would begin taking orders from fascist governors such as New Jersey’s Phil Murphy and Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer to delete content from users trying to plan protest events using the Facebook app.
In the last week, freedom-loving Americans have come to their wit’s end with autocratic governments shutting down their businesses and destroying millions of American jobs in a likely vain attempt to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
In nearly every area of the country, the cronavirus is on the wane and many Americans feel it is time to re-start the economy. But some leftist governors do not agree and are demanding that their stay-at-home orders continue to be obeyed.
Because many states are not moving fast enough to restart their economy, Americans are beginning to organize protests at state capitals to demand that the governments listen to the voters.
But Fascistbook is now taking action to stop these constitutionally protected protests from being planned on their platform.
Leftist CNN commentator Oliver Darcy posted Monday about Facebook and the state’s conspiring to prevent Americans from organizing the protests.
“Anti-quarantine protests being organized through Facebook in California, New Jersey, and Nebraska, are being removed from the platform on the instruction of governments in those three states because it violates stay-at-home orders, Facebook spokesperson,” Darcy wrote.

CNN “reporter” Donie O’Sullivan also added: “Facebook says it has removed promotion of anti-quarantine events in California, New Jersey, and Nebraska after consultation with state governments,” he continued.
“Says it is working to get answers from New York, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania as to whether anti-quarantine protests breaks those states’ social distancing measures,” he said.

According to the Washington Post, Facebook has admitted to letting state governments set Facebook’s policy on protests.
“Unless government prohibits the event during this time, we allow it to be organized on Facebook. For this same reason, events that defy government’s guidance on social distancing aren’t allowed on Facebook,” Andy Stone, a spokesman for Facebook, told the paper.
Who needs constitutional rights, huh?
The next Rosa Parks better check with Fascistbook to see if she will be allowed to hold her protests, I guess.
